Early Intervention Today: A Program Example.
Hanson, Marci J.
The paper examines the goals and effects of early intervention with infants at risk for possible developmental problems. Four components of San Francisco Infant Program are noted: (1) services to children, (2) parent involvement, (3) a transdisciplinary team approach, and (4) a research-based model. The research problems associated with examination intervention's effectiveness are considered, including ethical considerations and restricted measures of program effectiveness (i.e., child change). The author suggests that additional indices, such as the effects on family and community, should be explored as well. (CL)
